    The ambience at My Old Dutch is nice - however, the pancakes are quite underwhelming. Our food actually arrived luke warm, and was cold within a few minutes.

    I have been to My Old Dutch so many times, it is always a great meal - so many pancakes to choose from! Mondays is a busy day with the special offer so booking is good. The staff are friendly and very efficient. I can't wait to go again.

    A few hiccups at the start but once we got our food it was quite pleasant, hence the four stars. I'm gluten free and we had read on the website that the pancakes could be gf and df - great. Only starter according to website for gf would be nachos- no problem. Thry had changed recipe for this - yes you can have cheesy nachos but no cheese sauce!!! Plain nachos with the sides it was - no reduction in the price mmm My daughters cheese balls were delicious apparently. Ordered my pancake - the duck one - oh we don't have that one today. OK I will have The old Dutch!!! You can't have the ham on that it's breaded!!! So I went for the seafood - no anchivories or capers for me by choice, so that left tomatoes, cheese, tuna and King prawns yum - or so I thought. Massive crepe appeared - the gf wasn't quite cooked unlike my daughters one. It was a bit sloppy. And the prawns were just placed on top, cold!!! Not even warmed up. Wouldn't be my first choice to go back to as a gf eater and I haven't put it 9n the gf forum I belong to as a place of you must go to.

    I booked here for a meal before the theatre. I told them it was my daughters birthday and if they could put a candle on her dessert. They didnt do this but didnt charge me for the cake she had. I've been here many tomes and it never disappoints

    Not bad but kitchen closed early so we couldn’t order dessert and felt like we were being hurried out. Difficult to get staff attention when we wanted to order but they were very quick when they gave us the bill (without us asking for it)

    Sadly my pancake was fairly burnt, and lacking in most of the ingredients that were claimed to be included on the menu. So pretty disappointing, especially given the price of such a simple item. We had a cramped table at the back, so overall a loud, crowded and disappointing food... am sure we just had bad luck as other people's pancakes looked better.

    Very disappointed. This use to be one of my favourite places. They got my order wrong twice! The egg on one of the pancakes was not cooked and when came back with a new bowl of egg it definitely was not scrambled egg, it was just a big lump of egg which tasted awful. Another pancake was missing part of the order, then was left waiting for the other part of the order which left my pancake to get cold. Was not given water like other tables. I would usually recommend this place to everyone but after the service I received I’m very hesitant. Not sure is these issues are down to new staff or management. After all these issue and complaining I never received an apology. Very disappointed.
